New instructor increases DTE’s training capacity following record breaking year 

Oxford, UK, September 2016Desktop Engineering (DTE), a leading engineering software solutions provider and accredited business partner of Dassault Systèmes, today announced that another team member had passed his “Dassault Systèmes Certified Instructor” exam – consequently increasing DTE’s capacity to run CATIA V5 training courses. With an expertise in mechanical design and surface design, Alexandre Fernandes undertook several exams over the past few months to gain the certification.

DTE’s ability to deliver Dassault PLM training courses has dramatically increased in recent months. Earlier this year it received certification from Dassault Systèmes to become an Authorised Certification Centre – the first of its type in the UK. As an official test centre, DTE is sanctioned to administer and distribute Dassault certifications from its headquarters in Oxfordshire. (read more on how to book your exam here)

In addition, DTE is a member of Dassault Systèmes Education Partner Program+ (EPP+) which enables it to train Dassault’s major accounts in the UK. DTE courses are trainer-led and include instruction and demonstration of all relevant commands and functionality. Courses are progressive so that skills can be enhanced to the highest levels in a systematic way.

Geoff Haines, managing director at DTE, said:

DTE PLM courses are customised so that we can develop individual learning plans and company specific training programmes. Far too often training courses are generic and concentrate on material that the trainee is already competent on. Our approach is different which is why we are seeing such high customer demand which has resulted in us increasing our training team.
